Controversial, Intriguing and Challenging, 10 June 2005
Author: allfore11forall from United States

The film for me was a view into a bizarre and controversial and intriguing cycle of a friendship that when it ended it felt as though it had not ever started.Did they know each other. Did they understand each other. What would there be to grieve about. The friends represented a see saw that was always uneven and would any balance be gained with the loss of one? Had any balance ever been attained or had a true friendship ever been discovered? The film just made me think every step along the way. I wanted to know more and more and all the time, I felt alone and I felt bothered. I will never know what they were thinking about at that moment of death. What does anyone think at that moment of death. Were they on two different planes in life. How could two people, two friends, be so far apart and so detached at a moment when a bond was being nurtured. What was left out, what was not there? Will one ever forgive the other?
